Sandal Pick’s for Summer

Summer is my favorite season, as I’m sure it is for almost everyone who lives where you have the 4 seasons…. I’m just so ready to start wearing my sandals….

Here’s a look at my favorite styles for this season…..

Main Image - Marc Fisher LTD 'Adalyn' Espadrille Wedge Sandal (Women)

I’ve been watching these Marc Fisher’s  since last year.. I’ve debated on them and go back and forth on whether or not I should purchase them.. I’m such a casual person, that I’m afraid I won’t wear them that much.. But I do really like them… TBD…

Jaylen Wedge Sandal

 These Steve Madden Sandals are a great dup for the Marc Fisher’s and 1/3 of the price…. Although I think the reviews are better for the Marc Fishers, if you’re looking for a less expensive pair this pair would be good…Humm… Decisions??

Main Image - Steve Madden 'Sammson' Lace-Up Gladiator Sandal (Women)

I like the gladiator style and have a couple cute pairs but aren’t quite this high.. I love these Steve Madden Sandals and again saw them last year and wish I would’ve purchased them… I think they look super cute with cut off shorts, denim skirt or a cute dress… The price isn’t too bad either..

I couldn’t find a good dupe for these guys… But wanted to show you what I was diggin this season…

Main Image - Tory Burch 'Patos' Gladiator Sandal (Women)

I really like these Tory Burch Sandals, but I don’t love the price… They would be cute casual or you could dress them up a little with some white denim capri’s…

Not 100% sold on them because of the price..but still super cute…

Main Image - MICHAEL Michael Kors Fallon Gladiator Sandal (Women)

These Michael Kors  could be a cute alternative to the Tory Burch and half the price…

Main Image - TKEES 'Foundations' Flip Flop

Ok, so I love a good pair of comfortable flip flops that you can just throw on whether it’s a causal look or if you want to dress if up a little more.. I’ve purchased these TKEE’s before and loved them but found an almost exact pair for a fraction of the price… The TKee’s run for about $50….

Here’s the pair I found that are only $9.99 and don’t they look exactly like the TKEE’s? Well they’re Lauren Conrad Flip Flops from Kohl’s… I love them, they are my absolute favorite, I wear them with everything in the Summer… I hate wearing real shoes in the Summer, you’ll always find me in flip flops or sandals if I have to dress it up a little more…

Hope you enjoyed all my picks…

XOXO, Nancy

Let’s try this again….

Ok, well I’m back at it again… This time I’m really going to focus on my blog to see what I can make of it…I’m not going to lie as much as I’ve wanted to do a blog I’m completely scared to death… I’m not that great with technology and I’ve been trying to do this all on my own. I haven’t quite decided if I’m going to seek any professional help or keep plugging away at it myself.  It can be so confusing and most of the time when I research it, I have no idea what they are talking about..YouTube has been my saving grace so far.. 

I really want my blog to be about my personal style and how you can have designer fashions without having to pay full price for items. In the past when I was young and not so bright with my finances,  I would not think twice about paying full price for a designer pair of jeans, shoes or handbags.  Now that I’m older and maybe a little more mature and have a better handle with my finances, I’m always looking for a deal. If I find something I feel like I have to have and it’s regular price,  I will research it until I can find it on sale. Some items I don’t mind paying full price for if I know it’s a quality item and it will be a staple in my closet for a long time. 

My style is very classic and comfortable! Once in awhile I might throw in an edgier piece but for the most part my wardrobe consists of jeans, T shirt and flats.  I love the look of heels with jeans but my poor feet cannot take the heels for longer than an hour or two (depends on what and where I’m going, if I can sit down most of the time, it could be longer).  All the years of retail I’ve worked have really taken a toll my my feet. 

 Like I said before it will mostly be about my fashion finds but may throw in a few pic’s here and there of my home and family… 

Hope everyone enjoys my blog as much as I do!

Feel free to comment and leave some feedback, I’m always looking for ways to improve!

I’m back….

I’m finally back, it’s been a little while since I’ve posted anything..Things have been a little crazy around here for the last few weeks…..

 I got promoted with my job, trained and skated  Nationals in Albuquerque, NM, shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and finally got my braces off….and shopped some more!!

I think I posted in a previous blog… I’m an Inline Speed Skater and speed skate competitively. I went to Albuquerque, NM for Nationals  in the middle of July. I was really excited to go since I had been skating super good before I left and had high hopes of doing really well there. Well….. I didn’t do as well as I thought I was going to and was actually pretty disappointed with my overall performance. I had a couple good races… my sister and I won our 2 lady relay, got 2nd in my 2 mix relay  and got 2nd in my 4 mix relay.  My division was the big disappointment, by the way I skated you would’ve never thought I trained at all. I just couldn’t figure out how to skate the floor, I didn’t feel like myself on the floor.  I get to take a couple months off before my season starts again, so I’m going to enjoy my time off!! AND BLOG!!!

Stay tuned for my next post… It’s coming soon!

XO, Nancy

Where I Like to Shop..

Here are some of the stores I love to shop for my clothing:



Revolve Clothing


J Crew Factory


Banana Republic



I’m always looking for a good deal and try to buy all my clothing on sale. It makes it a little less painful when I get the bill, at least that’s what I’m trying to tell myself. I use to get buyer’s remorse a lot more when I was paying full price for items, now I can justify the great deals I’m getting, Right? 

The Nordsrom Anniversary Sale might just be the death of me, or my wallet. There’s way too many good deals to pass up and it only comes around once a year. Once I decide on everything I will post it separately, I’ve made a couple different purchases but still deciding if I need anything else or if I should return any of it.. Yea Right, not gonna happen!!

I’ll keep you posted! 

XO, Nancy



Happy Wife, Happy Life


I love this picture of my husband and me! We’ve been married for over 12 years, 12 long blissful years.. Oh geez, did that sound sarcastic? Of course it was… that’s the story of our lives, sarcasm. We wouldn’t have it any other way… We have the best marriage, we both are quick with the come backs, both of us are very independent, and very committed to each other and our family! 

XO, Nancy
